    25C is perfectly fine when you haven't got the added burden of the mid June sun beating down on you or if you can just laze about all day. I personally find anything above about 25C too much when you need to do any physical exertion, however. I was a sweaty mess when I got to work after a brisk walk in the other day- my back was soaked. Don't see how anyone can find that comfortable.

    I was in California and Nevada in April, and daytime temperatures typically reached 25/26C. However, due to the very low humidity in the arid/desert climate, it was far more pleasant than what we have had here recently, in similar daytime temperatures. Its been a bit unusual that the NW of England has probably been the warmest place in the country so far in June, and the heat has built up over days, with little cooling at night. Indoor temperatures are as warm as I can remember them being in a long time. I pretty much never have trouble sleeping, yet a few nights ago the heat got to me and I was still awake at 4am. That's unusual, for me. I guess in the NW we are used to short lived warm spells, punctuated with cooler ones, yet it's been very warm for a solid week now. I work outdoors in a physical job, and whilst I wouldn't say it's been too uncomfortable or unbearable recently, it really does take it out of me afterwards. I feel drained after work when the weather is as warm as this.

    Very well put,some people just have no tolerance over how other people react to various types of weather. They are right and that's it. A very strange way of expressing themselves in my opinion.

    Not hot? Being exposed to the June sun with temps of 26C would feel hot unless you are a skinny rake or have a circulation problem.

    Most of us in this country are happy in 18C-20C in Summer clothing (some of us, myself included, are fine even in the low teens in Summer clothing). As you said, for most of the rest of the world, this is exceptionally cool for the time of year. They'd all be wearing jumpers and sweaters in such temperatures. So actually, perhaps we're the tough ones? Can I please request that you tone it down a little, your aggressive posts are becoming rather tiresome.

    I don't particularly want the frontal rain all the cooler temps, but if it'll give me some thundery showers as well as some sunshine then I will take it, especially as this current setup has failed to deliver. If this pattern repeats again later in the month I won't be complaining though.

    People in the east who were stuck under cold cloudy skies last week will be getting their violins out for you!

    A nice cool down over the next week or so with some much needed rain. Fresher!

    I was just looking through the UK CAPE+lifted index chart and the last one shows this.... This would be so awesome if it actually happened

    Then I'm afraid that you are wrong. Anything above about 15c is "too warm" and anything above 20c is "too hot" for my personal comfort. I do not tolerate heat well at all and I have experienced temps from sub Arctic to desert and I know which I prefer. We are all different.

    Let me get this very straight,my job entails working in conditions you would never ever be able to cope with,i have to be timed at certain sites entrance and exit due to health and safety,my working day is obviously so much more extreme than your comment stressed flower is way off the mark. I have to take salt solutions on 3 customers sites!! Suspect your job is very desk bound and not in anyway physical!

    It was me who said the Constant sunny days are boring and I standby that. I'm sure many of my fellow convection fans would agree with me. It's okay to an extent but when it's sunny for days on end you just want some action. I'm looking forward to next week for that reason.

    Yes but he said most of the UK has had disappointing weather. It was very warm and sunny in the western half of the uk last week, someone on here even complained about it being boring because it was too sunny!!! I've been looking at the BBC forecasts and they have shown widespread 24/25/26 c with lots of sunshine since last Saturday...hardly disappointing, and its still very warm today! Some people are never satisfied!

    Phew, nice to see someone agrees with me! I was beginning to think this very warm spell was a figment of my imagination...and last week it was very warm and sunny on the western side of the UK. Hopefully we will have a major heatwave or 3 this summer with 30+ celsius

    A lot is riding on the AAM recovering after the current falling trend rather than transitioning to full La Niña state with the Azores High pulled back west. Has anyone got the latest GEFS outlook for the GWO? I'm on my phone and can't seem to locate my usual resource. Cheers. The repeated trend toward the Azores High nosing in later in recent GFS runs gives some cause to hope that the AAM might recover.

    It is looking like a very convective period of weather coming up, particularly so from Monday right the way through the week! The jet will be in play across S England in particular so the potential for some severe convective elements here. Could be an exciting week I think.

    Just looking at the NMM run for Friday, wow is all I can say!

    A general overview of the GFS this morning. As known the low pressure moves in from the west tomorrow and the ensuing slack area of low pressure remains in situ over the UK all of next week.Time for the trite giving outbreaks of rain, perhaps thundery, interspersed with sunny intervals. One thing of interest it does develop a low central Europe and wings it up to the Baltic. This not totally at odds with the GEFS anomaly which is dissipating the upper trough around the 18th and builds a ridge from the SW

    It may be common in London but away from the SE corner it becomes less so. And anyway recently we have had higher temps than London and a lot more sun which has really heated up the house. To have a very warm house for days on end is not normal here. The temp is currently 24C in my bedroom & has been for about 4 days now - for most normal people that sort of temp is hard to sleep properly in without waking up sweating or a headache. There hasn't been much of a breeze lately here either so even with the windows open I am unable to aerate the property. Personally I am not a lover of fans as I think all they do is blow the warm air around, they don't actually drop the indoor temp.

    A really odd sort of day, started slowly as they say then convection kicked off in afternoon and it cleared in the late afternoon

    Know exactly what you mean markyo, I've been scrubbing and cleaning all day today with the windows and doors wide open, and in this heat it's been really quite unpleasant. This sort of weather really isn't fun when doing anything physical. It's not just us who are ultra-soft freaks of nature markyo as some may try to make us believe, people in the local area here have been complaining a lot on social media about the lack of sleep and heat over the last couple of days. The temperature in my room hasn't dropped below 24C in days, horrible!

    Yes, not my kind of weather at all. Hay fever problems galore and quite uncomfortable to do anything in. Hopefully it won't continue all Summer.

    Banging headache,can't stop sneezing(even with tablets),wonder why summer is not my season. Very humid today more so than yesterday where i was,really can't wait for this crap to go. Does nobody any good at all if they have to work in it. Every single customer i've been to for the last 2 days has complained how uncomfortable it is so it's not just me being a old fart who bangs on about how he hates the heat!!

    A hive of activity down at the lake this morning. As you can see so far only one signet has been losted (fingers crossed) so still six and two from another nest who are younger. And Sidney got into a spot of bother

    Pipe dreams this far out from the gfs, If it did occur the temperatures must be forecast to be excessive and quite frank;y that amount of CAPE & -LI in the UK would mean a mass rush to purchase new trousers. The storms would me monsters compared to what we usually see...
